Because we shouldn't let Thanksgiving be the only season of gratefulness.

50 Things To Be Thankful For Even After Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is great. It's a day for families to get together, to catch up, and to remind people to remember the blessings that they have in their lives. But it's important not to let Thanksgiving be the only day of the year you take to remember the great things you have in your life. This year, the day after Thanksgiving, I decided to think of fifty unconventional little things (besides the obvious family, friends, life, shelter, etc.) that I can remember to enjoy every day of this year. I think it's a fun exercise, and it really reminded me of some of the amazing things in this life.

Here's my list:

  1. Music with meaning
  2. Dogs
  3. Cats
  4. When dogs give you kisses
  5. Colors
  6. The smell of warm cookies
  7. Chocolate
  8. Rainbows
  9. Little baby chicks
  10. Butterflies
  11. Eating turkey and stuffing and bread until you’re ready to fall over
  12. Books
  13. Warm blankets
  14. Fuzzy socks
  15. Beautiful artwork
  16. The Christmas season
  17. Snow days
  18. Small acts of kindness
  19. Hugs
  20. Seashells
  21. Hot chocolate with mini marshmallows
  22. When the leaves change colors
  23. Youtube
  24. Compliments from people who mean it
  25. Getting packages in the mail
  26. Strawberries
  27. Movie nights
  28. Roller coasters
  29. Hand-picked flowers
  30. Baby penguins
  31. When cats purr
  32. That exciting feeling on the night before a big event
  33. When a random stranger stops to compliment you
  34. Accents
  35. The sound of popcorn popping
  36. Genuine laughter
  37. Genuine smiles
  38. Bubble baths
  39. French fries
  40. Pizza
  41. Hand-written letters
  42. Coloring books
  43. Warm soup
  44. Warm sweaters

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look.
